The Depth of Spiritual Attainment
What is the difference between knowing about the world and its systems and the difference in the levels of spiritual attainment?
There are people who live in our world and don't know how the world exists, how nature works on its systems, i.e., the sun and the moon and the other phenomenon that are beyond the things that we need to know in order to simply get along day by day. Likewise, they don't delve in clarifying how the artificial systems that man invented operate, like the government, banking, etc. Instinctively, he has no need to clarify and research these things in depth. In contrast to these people, in this same world are different people who are more interested, who research the systems that operate on the world and know the same corporeal reality that we all live in, in a better way than the others.
Also in recognizing the spiritual world, similar laws exist. Each one who enters spiritual consciousness attains the roots, the powers, and laws that operate nature and man, but only according to the need that stems from the root of his soul. There are Kabbalists who resemble scientists in our world. They feel the need to research the spiritual system and understand how it operates, up to its tiniest detail. The root of the soul commits them to be included into all the parts and to grasp spiritual reality in an inclusive way. On the other hand, there are those who are satisfied with knowing the spiritual reality to a lesser degree.
It is important to point out that in the development of spirituality, the value of a man is measured and depends on how much he invests his strong efforts, and if he has corrected and completed himself in specific ways. This is not in relation to others, but in relation to the root of the soul that he was given, in relation to the extent of his desire and character. In addition to this, there is no matter of large or small, important or less important, because when a man completes his correction and acquires the attribute of bestowal, he transforms into a harmonious part of the system of bestowal and is not complete without even the smallest part.
